"A lovely small mosque" The Mosque of Sulayman Pasha al-Khadim Tip by dutchboycalledjan
The Mosque of Sulayman Pasha al-Khadim, Cairo: 4 reviews and 12 photos
In the northern enclosure, behind the National Military Museum is the Mosque of Suleyman Pasha. We found it beautiful and more inspiring then the two large ones. According to The Lonely Planet it has been restaured by an arts student.
The care taker slept when we came, but he caught up with us later. He was kind enough to show us some details, the madrassa and some tombs. The latter were very interesting, one with paintings, one with several 'hats', one for each family member and one with views of Ca´ro and Mekka painted on the walls. He let us take pictures.
Address: South-East Cairo
Directions: Citadel, through the Bab al-Qalla, cross the large area, into the next garden, at the back, the structure with the domes
